DUI checkpoint planned next week

LAKEPORT – In an effort to reduce the number of drunk drivers on local roads, local law enforcement plans to hold a driving under the influence checkpoint next week.


The checkpoint will take place from 8 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 26, to 2 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 27, according to a report from the Lake County Sheriff's Office.


Drivers will be checked for DUI and driver's licenses on S. Main Street, just north of Highway 175, in Lakeport, according to the report.


The Lake County Sheriff’s Office, the Lakeport Police Department and the Clearlake Police Department are working together with the Office of Traffic Safety to reduce the number of drunk drivers on Lake County’s roads.


Local law enforcement is working under a grant administered by the Office of Traffic Safety which allows deputy sheriffs and police officers to focus their attention on finding DUI drivers, when they are most likely to be on the road.


Deputies and officers also will conduct patrols and locate convicted DUI drivers who have failed to comply with the orders of a court.
